Yes it seems to make sence that the keel down would make a real difference but in the real world it isn't that obvious. A little help heading up wind but otherwise... Of course part of it may be that I have 3,500lbs lead in the keel already. and when swung up the center board is still at the very bottom of the keel Sounds like Merc2dogs sugestion of the Rubber stopper might be the best way to go. Can't have the water splashing in as it is in my engine room and goes all over the batteries.
